Foster Reeve: Architectural & Ornamental Plaster works closely with the design community to develop custom plaster mouldings for specific projects. As plaster continues its renaissance in interior architecture, many designers have chosen to explore the boundless applications of ornamentation for which plaster provides. Crown mouldings, coves, door casings, base, chair rail, astragal mouldings, and panel mouldings are generated in the studio regularly. Our plaster mouldings can turn your project into anything, from a classical European interior, to a modern home.
At Foster Reeve: Architectural & Ornamental Plaster, we have a team of highly skilled sculptors specially trained in plaster ornamentation. We have a wide array or ornaments from previous projects that can be used for your project, or as inspiration to make custom ornaments that can be applied to everything from plaster mouldings to bas relief panels. From restoration to ornamentation of plaster mouldings, you can count on our team to bring your vision to life.
At Foster Reeve we advocate for integral colored plaster finishes as a substitute for painted surfaces. The advantages of integral colored plaster are significant. There is a substantial health benefit from replacing the chemical skin of a painted interior with a naturally healthful product. Gypsum is essentially the same as a seashell, in which much of life thrives on our planet, and that is why we at Foster Reeve primarily provide traditional gypsum based finishes. These finishes can be repaired relatively easily, and can be sealed and maintained using natural soaps and waxes. Lime washes are also an option that is a wonderfully healthy choice for a human habitat.
Over the years, Foster Reeve has brought to light the many ways that interesting plaster products can be incorporated into modern designs in innovative ways that add interest and character to the space. FRA Shapeform is a lightweight, GFRG (Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum) panel system specifically designed for large, complex assemblies. Though typically used for ceiling applications, shapeform is versatile and can be used for many vertical applications as well. Shapeform panels are prepared in the shop with pre-fitted provisions to mount lighting fixtures and integral HVAC grilles. Embedded lighting saves time and creates a higher quality finished installation.
